Odds & ends:

Nate takes on the Rolling Stone "500 Greatest Albums" - and much better, and more thoroughly, than I did, I hasten to point out. His new(ish) livejournal, Awkward Uprocking, is pretty great, too.

Loving: the new pop-up blocker on the new Yahoo! toolbar, and the streaming net radio formerly known as Spinner, now Radio@Netscape Plus - now with a Bollywood channel!

Paul Stanley or Rufus Wainwright: who's gayer? Discuss.

Thinking more and more about Pazz & Jop. I might actually slide Mariah Carey's The Remixes into my Top 10 albums. [Shut up, you. And you, even though I'm glad to see you posting again.] Other albums likely to be Top 10-ish (in no order):
Soilwork, Figure Number Five
Justin Timberlake, Justified (late-breaker from '02)
Basement Jaxx, Kish Kash
Music from the Motion Picture Camp
Led Zeppelin, How the West Was Won
Postal Service, Give Up
Mandy Moore, Coverage
Erykah Badu, Worldwide Underground EP
Richard X, Richard X Presents His X-Factor, Vol. 1
Music from the Miramax Motion Picture Chicago
The Bad Plus, These Are the Vistas
Dizzee Rascal, Boy In Da Corner
Bubba Sparxxx, Deliverance
DJ/rupture, Minesweeper Suite (late-breaker from '02)
Chemical Brothers, Singles 93-03 (2-CD version)

Coming tomorrow: new weekly downloads. They'll both be UK singles from female artists without US record deals because, to quote Veronica Webb on Funkmaster Flex's The Mix Tape, Vol. II: 60 Minutes of Funk (Loud, 1997), they are "premium pussy." And because you need to hear these singles.
